The University of Arkansas at Little Rock Art Gallery will host an exhibition featuring the paintings of Susan Chambers.

The exhibition, “Susan Chambers: Through the Garden,” will run Sept. 11 through Oct. 6. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be on display in the Focus Gallery in the Windgate Center of Art and Design. A reception will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, in the Windgate Center.

Chambers has become well known for her bold, colorful paintings featuring garden scenes.

“The garden is the place that I go to create,” Chambers said in her artist statement. “The garden is the subject matter that I have explored for many years, and it is also a metaphor that continues to nurture my personal vision.”

Chambers earned a bachelor’s degree in art from Rhodes College in 1974 and a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Georgia at Athens in 1979. Her professional experiences in the arts have included residencies for the Arkansas Arts Council and adjunct positions at UA Little Rock, University of Central Arkansas, and Hendrix College.

Having been exhibited nationally and regionally, Chambers’ work is in public and corporate collections including Carillon Importers (Absolut), Central Arkansas Library System, University of Arkansas Medical System, Southeast Arkansas Arts and Science Center, and Systematics. She and her husband George live in the Quapaw Quarter historic district, where we operate Chambers Studio.

The UA Little Rock Art Galleries in the Windgate Center are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, and 2-5 p.m. Sunday.
